Private Gardens

With mature woodland, award-winning manicured gardens, an Italian walled garden and picturesque lake; our grounds provide a magical setting for your wedding day.

Beauty in nature

The Manor has always enjoyed splendid grounds and it is these gardens that form part of its inherent appeal, making it one of the most desirable Cotswold wedding venues today.

Whether you are looking to say your vows in the gardens, or simply use them for the backdrop to your wedding photography, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the number of breathtaking settings available. And with exclusive use, you can rest assured that the entire seven acres will be yours and yours alone to discover.

Naturally the gardens are at their most stunning in the spring and summer months when flowers are in bloom and the trees and hedges are lush and green. With gardeners and landscapers working throughout the year, the gardens are always immaculately tended, pruned and prepared.

As the setting for a wedding ceremony, our iconic hedge wall makes a dramatic aisle for a bride to walk along before reaching the stunning Victorian pavilion. With our private lake in the background, it’s hard to imagine a more romantic and unique setting to say your vows.

We invite you to create your perfect memories in our beautiful grounds, with the dramatic Victorian mansion as your backdrop, and stunning natural scenery, you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful and natural setting.
